National Vocation Awareness Week, November 1-7, 2020
Now is the time to plan how parishes and schools will pray, invite, teach, and celebrate! The Office of Vocations is providing these helpful resources as we celebrate God’s universal call to holiness by helping foster a culture of vocations in our families, parishes, and schools. Please consider using these resources, especially our new booklet promoting a culture of vocations (and share them with your Campus Ministry teams and religion teachers. It gives concrete suggestions on how you can encourage people to pray, learn, celebrate, and invite others to make discerning vocations part of your parish’s culture. You can also find the following resources at www.seattlevocations.com/blog/nvaw2020
